The sleuths also seized certain relevant documents related to purchase, tenders and sale records from these stores besides picking up samples of masala items and others items from these stores for quality checks.
Sources said the latest action is part of a preliminary probe against the largest consumer cooperative society of the country, which operates nationwide outlets, and a formal complaint could be lodged if any allegations of corruption are found true.
CBI sources said agency sleuths made checks at the head office of the body, a central governments' employee cooperative society, in south Delhi's Madangir area and three outlets of the same in Pragati Vihar, Sarojini Nagar and Laxmibai Nagar areas.
"The agency conducted surprise checks on Kendriya Bhandar premises as part of its probe into alleged violations of guidelines of purchase policy rules, general financial rules and CVC guidelines that due processes were not being followed in procurement of items for sale at these outlets," said R K Gaur, press information officer in CBI.
